- Best place for spokes?
If you want DT then Rose is where you want to be. They are getting a bit weird with unavailable 20 packs of sizes they will sell endless singles of though and aren’t quite as cheap as they used to be.
If ACI spokes are acceptable and your eyes can cope with the 2001 site design then CycleBasket are your destination I think.Posted 11 months agojoebristolSubscriber
I recently looked at spokes – Rose were definitely cheapest for DT Swiss as far as I could find.
Sapim were expensive everywhere.
CycleBasket do ACI which are marginally cheaper than the DT Swiss ones from Rose – although the ACI ones come with brass nipples where the DT Swiss don’t come with any.
I went with the DT Swiss ones in the end as I already had DT Rims and Squorx Nipples. They arrived fairly quickly (within a week). I’ve laced the wheels but not started tensioning yet so can’t comment on how they build up. Compared to the straight gauge Halo spokes I used on my last build they feel a bit flimsy / bendy. I don’t remember the ACI ones being quite the same – but they were a 26” build and this is a 650b so these might be a little longer.Posted 11 months ago
